When homeowners are asked which room of the house they would remodel if they had unlimited funds to do so, the surprising answer is often the bathroom. Though a large portion of the day is not spent there, many people find their current bathrooms to be unacceptable for one reason or another. What are the top reasons you should consider a bath remodel for your Rhode Island home?
1) To update an outdated look.
If your home is beginning to show its age, one of the most dated rooms of the house is most likely your bathroom. While a change of furniture can freshen the look of a den or living room, bathrooms require more work to reflect a modern feel. Choosing new faucets, light fixtures, and new color schemes can do much to increase the beauty of your bath and the overall value of your home.
2) To address mold and mildew issues.
If your bathroom is subject to moisture issues, mold and mildew can be both an eyesore and a health hazard. Additionally, mold can do structural damage to your home. Sometimes a restructuring of your bathroom is in order to better control any moisture issues and ensure your safety and the structural integrity of your home.
3) To add or change space.
A bathroom that was large enough for a couple may not be not large enough for a family of four. Changes in your lifestyle may necessitate a change in your bathroom as well. Perhaps you need more cabinetry, or maybe you just want more open floor space to move about freely. In any of these situations, a well-designed remodel can be just the thing to make it happen.
4) To accommodate evolving needs.
Perhaps you have come to a point in your life when you need a more accessible bathroom. You might enjoy the convenience and security of a walk-in shower instead of a tub. Or maybe you would like to install grab bars for safety reasons or widen a bathroom door to accommodate a wheelchair. If this is the case, a bathroom remodel can considerably ease your mind regarding how to navigate easily to accomplish personal grooming without outside assistance.
5) To correct plumbing issues. If you live in an older home, chances are you have already encountered some common plumbing issues. Rather than patching old pipes, it may be more cost-effective in the long run to re-plumb your home as part of a bath remodel. This saves costly repairs in the future, and provides peace of mind for many homeowners.
